New Honda Prototype reminds me of my Brute

...Called the Evo6, it reminds me of the Brutale with an Arrow shorty pipe, a really fat engine, and Bimmer M3 wheels Looks groovy to me.

its a bit like a drug I had to go and have a look! If you got rid of the engine it would look like a good bike.

That's like saying if MV got rid of the "Art" concept it would work like a good bike.

The Honda flat 6 is probably the SWEETEST motor I've ever owned.

I dig the headlight, the air intakes and the shape/look of the radiator.
Diffrent looking bike, cant say i am too crazy about the way the engine looks on that particular bike. Just my $0.02

I can vouch for that also. I was all set to buy a BMW until I test-rode the Goldwing 1800. The engine had me hooked and I ended up with the Wing.
How I come to now be riding a Brute is a whole new story of temptation.....

Let me 'WEIGH' in on this.....Honda has a history of stepping out on their flat six motor. I owned an '04 Rune for a year, and traded it on a Ducati Sport 1000. I must have ADD.


I do actually wish that I still had the Rune...

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........

It looks like a sumo was dropped on a brute and then he disgorged a few half-eaten Playstations all over it.

The engine looks like it was ripped off an old airplane. Too bad it's not a radial engine:


Time is a delusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Mirrors let it down though
Every other aspect is edgy and new and they ended up sticking a 70s CB mirror on it...
